THE first race is over and the results are out, and once again it looks as if it is going to be a battle between the Naickers - uncle and nephew.

Liberated at Vrede at 7.30 am the first arrival clocked was to RD Lofts (nephews) at 10.36 to record a velocity of 1232.938 metres per minutes. Not happy with that he clocked his second pigeon 12 seconds later to record a 1231.618 mpm velocity gaining second position.

Not to be outdone Uncle Balan clocked the next three at 10.37,10.48 and 11.02 to gain 3, 4 and 5th positions with velocities of 1230,1161 and 1081.

Hello, what’s this? At 12.29 a pigeon for the Old Grizzle with a velocity of 773.765 clocked in.

Paul Roux pigeons liberated at 7.30 am resulted in the Naicker Bros taking the first two positions at 10.54.39 and 10.54.50 with velocities of 1332 and 1331 with a surprise third going to the Old Grizzle at 11.01 with a velocity of 1294.128mpm. Rubbing nephew’s nose in the dirt, Uncle Balan clocked the next two as well as leaving RD Lofts in the sixth place. Fifteen positions were filled in this race - not bad returns.
